Nicki Minaj isn't the only one who thinks that a duet with Mariah Carey on American Idol would make for great TV.

Carey's hubby Nick Cannon says he could see the two new judges hitting the Idol stage together.

"I'm pretty sure they could figure that out," Cannon told us while promoting tomorrow night's TeenNick HALO Awards (airing Monday at 8 p.m. on Nickleodeon) in Hollywood. "They could definitely do that. Why not? People love that stuff."

Nicki or not, Cannon says Carey will most definitely be performing at one point on the hit Fox reality show.

"She got a new album coming out," he dished. "I'm pretty sure they'll figure that out. That's probably part of the whole thing, she's going to get out there and promote her new music."

The 32-year-old can't wait to see his wife as a judge when Idol premieres. "I think it's all about the opportunity for people to see Mariah for who she really is," he gushed. "You'll get to see how intelligent she is. You'll get to see how witty, and her great sense of humor. Also, her nurturing spirit and wanting to help all these young people accomplish their dreams."

Cannon says Carey will also most likely be at tomorrow's taping of the TeenNick HALO Awards, which honors teens for their commitment to public service and charity work. Giving back is something he's passing along to his and Carey's twins, Morrocan and Monroe.

"I was always taught to whom much is given, much is required," he said. "I instill those same things into my children."

And just in time for Thanksgiving! As for who's cooking the Turkey Day dinner next week, Cannon laughed, "Mariah does most of the cooking. She'll be doing that."
